If you haven't noticed, I've gotten really into furniture over the past year or so, oof. I'm now all for getting pieces that will last, both in terms of style and construction/build, instead of tossing and re-buying my Ikea furniture every time I move. It's been hard not to make our new space into a design victim's lair (and I don't think we quite succeeded), but hopefully we'll be able to collect some cool and unique things over the years that will soften the edges up a bit.
The 35'' Saarinen dining table is perfect for our tiny space, though our experience in getting it - from the DWR outlet on eBay - was far from perfect. It took three (!) deliveries, but we finally ended up with the correct table. I researched chairs for a good, like, two weeks before I went with my first pick anyway. We ordered them back in July and finally got them today. They make them from scratch I think. It's embarrassing to admit how much these chairs excited me (these are the wafer + walnut legs).
I'm also pretty excited to be able to sit at a different "desk" for some work, especially as my iMac's wifi has been busted for months.
And if you're curious, we painted this wall "Wrought Iron" by Martha Stewart Living.
P.S. Thank you all for the thoughtful responses on the last post - it was great to learn more about your current/past whereabouts and how you feel about them.
